Track review of "Andromeda"

California Guitar Trio: Andromeda California Guitar Trio celebrates it twentieth anniversary on Andromeda. Protégé's of iconic progressive rock guitarist Robert Fripp (of King Crimson fame), the trio's distinct and borderless methodologies have garnered acclaim throughout the past two decades. The band was often the opening act during King Crimson's late 1990s and early 2000s renaissance. Here, the artists and a special guests pay a bit of homage to the constellations.

"Andromeda" finds the trio incorporating a touch of classical inferences and folk-rock, with Tyler Trotter enveloping and treating the overall muse via streaming Moog effects. The primary thrust of this piece centers on the guitarists' interweaving ostinato voicings, that cast a flowing and prominent chordal impression. Dynamics abound, as the musicians render highs and lows with a linear gait that offers a race-against-time vibe. The trio culminates the memorable melody with soaring lines, amid an absorbing and sublime theme that simply caresses the soul.

Personnel: Paul Richards: guitars; Bert Lams: guitars; Hideyo Moriya: guitars; Tyler Trotter: Moog.

Year Released: 2010 | Record Label: Inner Knot
